what were the lucky numbers? 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and of course the power ball, 6. the record jackpot the biggest in power ball history. >> some of the world's most dangerous terrorists could be headed to the united states. the chairwoman fine stein had a report saying jails in the united states could safely house nearly 170 detainees from guantanamo bay. the facilities would need to be modified. president obama ordered the closing of gitmo when he took office back in 2009. that move was blocked by congress over concerns of local security. >> palestinian leaders predicted they will score a win today when they vote on whether to recognize the palestinian state. they are against the effort arguing the solution will come
when palestinians and israelis return to the bargaining table. >> i have said many times the path to a situation that fills the palestinian people is through injuries lel and ramallah, not new york. >> israeli officials have already said they will not return to negotiations after the vote and believe that it instead undermines hope for a peace deal. susan rice's potential bid to be secretary of state comes more in jeopardy. it leaves more questions than answers. the opposition stems largely from this remark they made since the september 11th attack in benghazi. hillary clinton and the president still support her. >> susan rice has done a great job as our ambassador to the
united nations. of course this decision about my successor is up to the president. >> and the president recently called her work extraordinary. >> it is beginning to look a lot like christmas here in new york city. >> 3, 2, 1. >> the iconic rockefeller center christmas tree is all lit up. it is a norway spruce from mount olive, new jersey, that made it through super storm sandy, by the way. it is illuminated with more than 30,000 lights and topped a crystal star. >> think of all of the scaffolding to decorate it. that is amazing. >> that is your 5@5:00.

authority from the congress to do just that. >> we haven't heard from mitt romney since he came up short on leblgs day. we have seen him pumping his own gas and riding roller-coaster in california went viral. today's lunch comes a little over 6 weeks after the two men were basically at each other's throat arguing about the administration's response to the deadly raid on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record. >> we have no reason to expect that today's lunch time conversation will be anything like that. there is a precedent in recent history for this tynkind of meeting. 13 days after obama beat mccain

small businesses. organization that could use money that could use help is the u.s. postal service. they have a plan to help them survive. >> they have a plan the problem is you have heard it before. he has a way to make money. the agency is not asking congress for money even though they have 15 billion this year. they are cutting benefits from 5 billion to 1 billion. just that will put the agency in the black next year and then the post office can continue delivery. >> he talked about same day delivery. we talked about that. >> amazon is doing that wal-mart is doing that. >> this next story we have to tell you about. churches renting out sell towers -- their steep pells as cell towers. >> we pray for better service now we aprayers are being answe.
